G418 (Geneticin) : selection antibiotic, cell culture tested, sterile reagent
- What is G148 ?
- G418, also known as G418 sulfate and Geneticin, is an aminoglycoside antibiotic similar in structure to gentamicin B1, produced by Micromonospora rhodorangea.
- G418 blocks polypeptide synthesis by inhibiting the elongation step in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
- Resistance to G418 is conferred by the Neomycin resistance gene (neo) from Tn5 encoding an aminoglycoside 3'-phosphotransferase, APH 3' II.
- Selection in mammalian cells is usually achieved in 3 to 7 days with concentrations ranging from 400 to 1000 µg/ml.
Cells that are dividing are affected more rapidly than non-dividing cells.
